Dr. Roger Leir Has Died!

I'm sad to announce that Roger Leir passed away yesterday, March 14, 2014 while preparing to go into surgery on his foot. He had excused himself to visit the hospital men's room and never came out. The official cause of death has not yet been announced. I find it ironic that a podiatrist still suffering from medical complications for an injured foot should die while in the hospital before his medical procedure.In July 2010 Leir suffered a bad roll-over car accident while returning home from the International MUFON symposium in Irvine, California. He injured his foot and stomach and was hospitalized for some time before returning to his various projects.

Dr. Roger K. Leir, author of the Aliens and the Scalpel-First and Second Edition, “UFO Crash in Brazil”, “Casebook Alien Implants”, “Chopped Liver” and three other books published outside the United States, including “Implantes Alienegenas” published in Portuguese in Brazil, and “Ovnis and Implants” published in France by Le Mercure Dauphinois.

It has been said that Dr. Leir was one of the world’s most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology. He and his surgical team had performed fifteen surgeries on alleged alien abductees. This resulted in the removal of sixteen separate and distinct objects suspected of being alien implants. These objects have been scientifically investigated by some of the most prestigious laboratories in the world including Los Alamos National Labs, New Mexico Tech, Seal Laboratories, Southwest Labs, the University of Toronto, York University, and the University of California at San Diego. Their findings have been baffling and some comparisons have been made to Meteorite Samples. In addition some of the tests show metallurgical anomalies such as highly Magnetic Iron that is without crystalline form, combinations of crystalline materials mixed common metals, growth of biological tissue into or out of metallic substances, as well as isotopic ratios not of this world.

Dr. Leir has also been involved in investigations of other areas of Ufology involving physical evidence. He has traveled to Brazil and performed exhaustive research into the Varginha, Brazil case. In 2003 Dr. Leir worked with one of the worlds leading geneticists and the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) on a DNA study pertaining to evidence collected in a famous California Alien Abduction Case. Dr. Leir was a recent participant (NOV. 2007) in an international press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Evidence from thirteen Military officers, pertaining to their experiences with UFO’s was presented to a worldwide media.
Dr. Leir a longtime Podiatric Surgeon, had been in private practice in Ventura County, California, for the past 43 years. Dr. Leir had anticipated performing more surgeries in the future and was investigating the physiological and biological aspects of the Alien abduction phenomenon. He had recently formed a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization for this purpose called “A &S Research Inc.”
Dr. Leir held academic degrees of Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Bachelor of Science, and Associate in Arts.

Dr. Leir was Board Certified in the following boards:
The National College of Foot Surgeons
The American Board of Podiatric Sports Medicine
The American Board of Foot Surgery
The American Circulatory Society and the Society for Non-Invasive Vascular Technology.

Dr. Leir was an international speaker and has presented his material at conferences in the United Kingdom, Brazil, Turkey, Japan, Australia, France, Canada, Peru, Mexico, Italy, San Marino, totaling 42 countries in the past 7 years. Dr. Leir is one of the very few researchers in the field of Ufology to have been invited to present his findings at a meeting of The Society for Scientific Exploration in Paris, France.

He has also appeared on a wide variety of radio and television shows including, The Orlando Jones Show, The Bronx Bunny Show, KTLA News, Fox News, The Prime Time NBC Special “Confirmation”, “Beyond Bazaar”, “Coast to Coast” with Art Bell and George Noorey, “Dreamland” with Art Bell and Whitley Strieber, “The Bob and Zoh Hieronimus Shows”. He has recently been filmed for an appearance in Walt Disney’s new film, “Race to Witch Mountain” which is scheduled to screen in your local theater in 2009. Dr. Leir held the distinction of being the only speaker invited to the Bay Area UFO Conference every year since the inception of this event. In addition he was an invited speaker to the European division of the Society for Scientific Exploration in Paris. Dr. Leir was the Master of Ceremonies at a new conference in Santa Maria, California—The Central Coast Science-UFO Symposium held August 16th and 17th 2008.

Over the past fifteen-plus years Dr. Leir had pursued a quest for knowledge within this field with great intensity. As a result he serves as a medical consultant to the International Mutual UFO Network. He was also past State Section Director for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.
Dr. Leir was involved in the production of a major motion picture “Earths Original Sin”. He was one of the few people granted an interview with one of the Vatican’s most prestigious Monsignors (Monsignor Corrado Balducci) to gather material for his motion picture project. He was also working w/ videographer Ron James on a documentary that covered his many years in ufology.

I have had contact with Dr. Leir over the past 4 years because of my interest in the Kumburgaz Case. It is my conclusion that Dr. Leir was in Turkey as he described during the sightings and witnessed the objects seen on video himself. Not to mention there is photographic proof that Leir was there.

He also was interviewed in a documentary from Turkey at the time.

I had talked to him 3 or 4 times about this on the phone and I would find it very hard to believe that he would make up this up and risk his entire reputation in the field over it. Him being a witnesses is important because the objects captured on video over Kumburgaz show detail not seen before or since.

Also to add: Haktan Akdogan who researched this case the most in Turkey is going to be speaking at this years Ozark UFO conference in April.

Dr. Leir stated the following things about what occurred.

1. They used binoculars and surveyed the area of the sea and did not find any oil rigs, docks, or lighthouses in the area that would cause a misidentification.

2. There was an extremely bright moon that night which assisted in the clear visibility of these objects on camera.

3. He and a crowd of 7 to 8 other (mostly Turkish speaking) people were standing behind the camera , some watching on a television monitor streaming the live video and nobody saw what could have been a model, balloon, or prop of any type.

4. The animals (especially dogs) were making a lot of noise only at the time that these objects were in the air over the sea.

Rest in Peace. Dr. Leir I will continue to tell your story and share the video that was taken.

Here is a newly discovered video which took place on May 14, 2009 at the time of the conference in which Leir was attending. An object is seen buzzing the conference.

Very sad news, and curious that he would die suddenly in the men's room just before having surgery. I hope that his research, samples, data, etc., concerning the implants is well-secured by a responsible person who will safeguard it for future release. Does anyone here who knew him also know his closest colleagues?

My heart goes out to Dr. Leir, his family, friends, countless patients, and colleagues whom his life and work has touched.
His research and analysis has been a potent resource in the quest to understating the true nature of the implant phenomena. As a devoted and intrinsic part of the UFO community his life and dedication will be sorely missed, but his legacy will prove fruitful for future generations to come and will undoubtedly inspire and fuel the new wave of researchers in the field. Rest in peace.

Sad news. He was always an interesting guy to listen to. Hopefully someone picks up where he left off so his work doesn't become a footnote in UFOlogical history.

Very sad news for many in Ufology and no doubt other fields too. Like Chris points out, it is very ironic that he should die awaiting foot surgery. He had his detractors but I found his work highly intriguing. RIP.
